I really do like this program. But there are a couple of minor enhancements that would make it much better.

We often convert a bunch of dmg files into the bzip2 compressed format in order to save space. But every once in a while, it throws up a dialog box saying that the results are larger than the original, and which do we want to use. It would be nice to be able to have it automatically keep the smaller of the two.

Also, it would be nice to have it automatically do a scan for restore on any dmg for which that can be done, and for which it hasn't been done.

But a great program otherwise

Doesn't work in Mountain Lion. Unfortuantely, I use this tool all the time to make disk images from folders, and to convert traditional (zlib) compressed disk images into highly compressed (bzip2) disk images.

It does work here on ML. It starts though with a message saying that it has to quit because of an unknown error. But you have the option either to continue or to quit. If you press continue it works fine. - If it quits trash the preference file.

Easily the easiest method for making your own DMG documents. Although it can be used with document which span several disks, I found it best suited for single and double-layer DVDs. Oh, and its free!

This is a very good piece of freeware and it merits the maximum rating in many categories. If you have any need to make, create or change DMG disk images, you need to check out this tool.

While most of what it does could be done from Apple supplied command line and GUI utilities, this is my preferred tool for its intended functions. It is far easier and quicker for me to drag and drop a bunch of files onto DMG converter, then it is to accomplish the same goal via the other tools.

My most common use for DMG Converter is to convert existing disk images to the bzip2 format. The bzip2 format typically results in smaller file sizes.

The only improvements that I can think of for this software, would be if I could set what the default behavior should be in the unusual instances when the converted image is larger than the original. There is a preference for asking me. But I'd rather that the smallest file were the one kept, whether that is the original or the converted.

It would also be nice to be able to drop a whole folder or drive with DMG images in subdirectories and have it traverse the directory structure and reconvert them.

Great App, any chance of an auto quit feature for this app after creating a file?

Many Thanks

Hi,

Starting two days when I'm trying to create a dmg from a folder under my documents folder/subfolder or to convert an dmg from a file within my subfolders I have each time an error saying "error ID 2: no such file or directory".

now It only work if source folder or dmg file (for creation or convertion) is on the desktop.
It never happens before with old version.

Thanks for this great utility.
I'm on MacOSX 10.5.8.

A .DMG created with OS X 10.6 (GM) doesn't open under OS X 10.5

Needs a fix asap.

Thank you for the report.

Can the dmg file made by using other software (FreeDMG,DropDMG,etc) on OS X 10.6 do the mount with OS X 10.5 or less?

Time might hang in the fix of this problem because the author is not using OS X 10.6 (GM) now. (and doesn't have OS X 10.6 (GM).)

Sorry, but since a couple of new releases, it allways crashes when it starts.

I use in in an Intel MacBook Pro with the Operating System fully updated.

Thank you for the report.

This problem might be solved by starting after the preferences file is deleted.
Preferences file is in the following:

/ Library / Preferences / jp.sunskysoft.DMGConverter5.plist

This problem seems to occur uncommonly.

http://sunsky3s.s41.xrea.com/dmgconverter/index.html says:

"Version 5.0.4r2 Universal Binary dmg.zip format (5.0MB) (2009/6/27)"

So the proper thing to do is to contact the developer and not post here with such matters.

Version 5.0.4r2 replaces the translation of German.
There is no change in the application.
